10 Days of NY Writers Coalition

Monday, October 22, 2012


Welcome to 10 Days of NYWC!

It's our 10th anniversary, and by now, we really know how to stretch a dollar. Imagine what we could do with ten of them. Ten dollars puts pens and notebooks into the hands of writers as young as six years old. Ten dollars buys two workshop participants round-trip MetroCards for NYWC reading events. Every $10 donation helps make a writing workshop happen for homeless, incarcerated, or disabled individuals on every day of the week. Help us ensure countless voices continue to be heard.

Join NYWC to raise as many $10 donations as possible October 22-31 during 10 Days of NYWC and win a shot at some great prizes! If we raise $10,000 or more during the 10 Days of NYWC, every dollar raised will be matched by an anonymous family foundation donor that has given us a challenge grant, so please help us exceed this goal to turn $10,000 into $20,000 or more! 

If you can raise one donation ($10), that's great! If your goal is 100 donations ($1000), that's awesome! Every donation counts, so thank you for participating. To help spread the word these next ten days, NYWC will host a series of free events around the city. So, come out for a good time and encourage your donors to do the same.
